This epistle clearly is connected with the former epistle of
Peter. The Apostle having stated the blessings to which God has
called Christians, exhorts those who had received these precious
Gifts, to endeavour to improve in graces and virtues. They are
urged to this from the wickedness of false teachers. They are
guarded against impostors and scoffers, By disproving their
false assertions, ch. 3:1-7, and By showing why the great Day
of Christ's coming was delayed, with a description of its awful
circumstances and consequences; and suitable exhortations to
diligence and Holiness are given.
